ART IN MOTION: For her latest collection of wedding gowns, Carolina Herrera channeled inspiration from fashion featured in the work of Edgar Degas, Sandro Botticelli and Franz Xavier Winterhalter. Costume designer William Ivey Long was one of the guests at Herrera’s runway show Sunday at Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue flagship. “I’m playing hooky from ‘9 to 5’ during our dinner hour. I’m going back to see Dolly Parton now. Our first preview” was Tuesday, he said, adding Lily Tomlin dropped by a recent rehearsal. Long said he approached the late Seventies costumes without any “Dynasty”-type shoulder pads. “There is a lot of body-shaping and color. Remember this is when Diane von Furstenberg broke on the scene,” he said.

Parton has been known to be a scene stealer, but Long described her as “America’s sweetheart….She really is. Today she brought in fudge she had cooked for all of us, and the other day it was cookies.” Apparently the original “9 to 5”-er rustles up such delicacies in her tricked-out RV, which she retreats to once the theater fades to black each night.
